If you want a practical guide to equipment and sound for small- to medium-sized gigs, then look no further! Live Sound For The Performing Musician is just what you need. It covers everything from choosing the best PA equipment and back line amplification, to selecting just the right type of microphone and finding your way around a typical live sound mixer. Some other things also discussed are effects and processors, stage monitoring, tuning, DI techniques, radio mics, basic wiring information, amplifier and loudspeaker principles -- and even some performance tips. Being described as a musician who sounds an awful lot better than his musical abilities should reasonably allow, author Paul White offers practical advice and meaningful information along with crystal clear diagrams, the minimum of jargon and a very comprehensive glossary. 288 pages.
